“The Late Late Show” host James Corden has organized some pretty epic Carpool Karaokes in the past, from arranging an impromptu date night for Kelly Clarkson and her hubby to belting out hits with Bruno Mars.
But we need to add his most recent episode with Christina Aguilera to our list of all-time favorites.
As usual, James kept audiences laughing as he and Christina took a scenic tour around Hollywood en route to his show’s studio. Christina looks gorgeous as always in her cute denim jacket and loose, platinum waves.
After starting off singing along to a rousing rendition of “Fighter,” James reminded viewers that Christina got her start on a very special TV show: “The All New Mickey Mouse Club.” Naturally, he had a few questions about what it was like to work with castmates like Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears.
Shockingly, Christina says she wasn’t into dreamy pre-teen Ryan Gosling back in the day. Instead, she had the hots for Justin Timberlake. You and every other tween girl in the 90s, Christina!
After dishing the dirt on the MMC gossip, James and Christina switched gears and began singing “Dirrty,” and that’s when things got even more interesting… and why we count this carpool as one of the best!
When it came time for Redman’s rap verse in the song, none other than actress Melissa McCarthy popped up from the backseat to totally nail his part! Who knew Melissa was such a great rapper?
Later, James produces three bedazzled microphones from the glove compartment and asks Christina for some vocal coaching. This is a great chance for the songstress to show off her incredible range.
And boy does she still have it!
Melissa soon bailed out of the backseat as abruptly as she arrived, but Christina and James weren’t quite done yet. The pair wrapped up their ride with a pretty impressive version of “Beautiful.”
One thing is clear when watching this video — Christina’s talent is something you don’t see (or hear) every day! Oh, and Melissa McCarthy might be the funniest passenger to ever crash an episode of Carpool Karaoke!
Watch the whole wild ride below, and don’t forget to share with a “car-aoke” fan you know.
